Mastering the Deposition: Critical Skills and More

Description: You can't win a trial at deposition, but you certainly can lose one. This CLE is designed to avoid that outcome by addressing basic and intermediate deposition techniques. Attendees will hear from experienced litigators who will discuss key components of the deposition process. Specifically, attendees will learn how to:

• Prepare yourself and your clients for a deposition
• Use of exhibits and documents effectively during a deposition
• Know when and how to object when defending a deposition
• Prepare for, take and defend an expert witness deposition
• Prepare for, take and defend a corporate representative deposition

Finally, a portion of the program will be devoted to ethical considerations in deposition settings, dealing with difficult counsel and witness preparation.
